Posted on Monday, October 08, 2018 by "T".
Bobby Baldwin, who became the 1978 WSOP Main Event champion, is going to leave his post as one of the executives for MGM Resorts International sometime "later this year."

For every elderly person comes the time to give up the job. This Bobby Baldwin has 68 years old. He has a very interesting soubriquet “The Owl” but also has 4 bracelets. It does not matter now that he has been dismissed or is his age. He must accept the situation if he has not been agreed there.

This guy epitomises the word 'legend' in the poker community. The fabled Bobby's room is synonymous with stories of mega millions being gambled and monster pots being won and lost

Who know what has happened, that lead to this "decision" but all we can say is,
that he has lived the the gambling world inside and out.
Informative article, didnt know that the well known poker room was named after him.
He is not that young anymore Smile well paid, so retirement wont hurt him Smile

Yup, I think of this as less of a strategic move and more than something which related with his age and his overall workload. He probably moves to Florida as most of retired people do in the US.

Ahh those good years when Brunson was young, Stu Ungar was still there. I wish we could have players of those calibre again but the modern poker game has ruined everything...

Ruined in what way? The current player crop are more ruthless and calculated than those.good old boys, so if anything they are more successfull against a wider and smarter opponents pool. If anything its harder making money out of it than thirty-forty years ago.

68 years old is of course a solid age .... apparently At this age, Man decided to take a break from poker .... Especially since he has significant achievements in this game .... Four bracelets is very cool ... a legend man ... .and of course the game is now a little different than 10-20 years ago .... new times new game speeds

Well I wish the best to Bobby Baldwin, who despite his long career left after so much time all to retire ... but as it is big fence to know to dedicate now I hope it fits well in his retirement and enjoy of the years that lie ahead (if you want to share something with me I would not refuse) Agree Agree Agree

This Bobby Baldwin is a relative with the Baldwin brothers? I know one of them was arrested for a quarrel, because of the parking spaces. Is an actor who quickly loses his temper, but i do not know why he does this thing. Alec Baldwin has an age and should be a mature man, but unfortunately he is immature.
